It doesn’t really seem like it’s been 10 (technically 11 now) years since Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. I would argue that this three-act wonder jumpstarted an entirely new business model for online entertainment.

The first edition consisted of three previously digital-only stories: Captain Hammer: Be Like Me, Moist: Humidity Rising, Penny: Keep Your Head Up, plus the one-shot Dr. Horrible, and the story Evil League of Evil, all written by Zack Whedon...

Calamity Kate #1

Writer: Magdalene Visaggio
Artist: Corin Howell
Colorist: Valentina Pinto
Letterer: Zakk Saam

Published by Dark Horse Comics

You get the beginnings of what is sure to be an exciting adventure with a bit of emotional impact. While it’s about soldiers in space, it has the same feeling as a rookie cop show. This is not a criticism. In fact, this is what makes Starcraft Soldiers #1 so interesting...

THE STORY – I have to say I’m not a huge fan of video game adaptations in movies or comics and I’m not a huge gamer but judging this book just on the story alone it wasn’t terrible, the writing was good and could ...
